An eight-part tracklist of sheer mayhem with an elegant overtone. Head Heavy is an addition to the warfare that Alezi has initiated. The Jacksonville emcee makes his mixtape debut and CitrusRap debut, by giving us something to stir up this year’s lyrical debate. Freestyle or written, it’s safe to say that no beat is safe around Alezi this year.
The introduction to Head Heavy, “LIKEATATTOO”, is a straight body blow over a minimalistic styled beat. Perfectly titled, of course. Placing every bit of faith in his fate into his on hands. 100% guaranteed, on me. “LIKEATATTOO” is self motivator. It features a strong, drum filled beat that Alezi manipulates flawlessly with his speed bag of rhymes and throwing a hay-maker or two ever so often. Never missing a punch. Reminiscent of the generations greatest fighter, in which the track is obviously themed after.
A treasure chest full of gems such throughout the ENTIRE project. Such as “CHICAGO” and the final track, “SKYFALL”. This man and his army in Jacksonville is a force to be reckoned with and should never be taken lightly. Doing it in the most organic way so far. Not only does this seem like it’s sport to him, but it’s child’s play in some way. Convincing me that he has something dynamic hidden up his sleeve and this is barely the tip of the asteroid. I just pray that the world is ready for the refreshing, new take on Florida’s sound.
Heavy Head is truly an experience for music lovers and elite emcees. One that needs to be witnessed in order to be understood.
